IND vs SL: Session Review at Lunch

India are 109/2 after losing two early wickets in the first session.

Both the teams will be pleased with the outcome of the session. Rohit and Mayank got India off to a fast start by getting through the initial stage when there was some movement.

Kumara, on the other hand, secured Rohit’s wicket by targeting him with a succession of short deliveries. Mayank was looking fantastic as well, but he took the incorrect line against Embuldeniya.

Vihari, India’s new “1st Down batsman”, has looked comfortable at one end, while Kohli has battled the butterflies of the 100th Test and settled down.

The surface is devoid of uneven outcomes and appears to be a standard Indian soil wicket with some assistance to spinners. Sri Lanka will only have one acknowledged spinner on the field, and he will have to perform the majority of the job.

Virat is batting at 15 runs, while Hanuma at 30 runs. Both of them look strong enough to take this partnership for at least 150 runs more.
